We are seeking to appoint an innovative and motivational mathematician with excellent subject knowledge and the ability to enthuse and engage students and the dedication, commitment and strategies to raise attainment at both Key Stages 4 and 5.
The post offers an exceptional opportunity for either an experienced practitioner with a proven record of academic success seeking a new challenge, or an individual who is relatively new to the profession with the ability to teach up to KS5 from the outset. We offer an excellent induction programme within a supportive environment and are committed to high quality professional development and continuous improvement in both teaching and learning.
Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1,700 students on roll including 600 post-16. Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. With an excellent reputation within the local community a recent Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories.
Maths lessons are taught in a suite of dedicated classrooms complete with interactive whiteboards and Apple TV connections. The faculty has class sets of laptops, netbooks and iPads for student use and a programme of lessons prepared and ready for use in our state of the art interactive 3-D learning hub.
If students have a passion for maths we are keen to drive them to achieve their potential, so if you are passionate about teaching and learning, share our enthusiasm for maths and are seeking to develop your practice in a supportive and dynamic faculty, we would be delighted to hear from you.
